Arnette Change Up Sunglasses: Lightweight, Durable Specs for the Suave Traveler
by Mike Richard | September, 2013
Interchangeable sunglasses (meaning, you can swap the stems) are nothing new. But Arnette’s new Change Up specs add a few new tricks to the mix. Firstly, they of course feature two different sets of arms: the thin are sleeker, while the thick provide greater protection from the sun and other elements.
They’ve also been designed from the ground up to take a beating, featuring an incredibly durable Grilamid frame and lightweight, but sturdy polycarbonate lenses. What’re more: they use a lever/sleeve mechanism to remove the arms, versus twisting the arms to remove them, which can wear out the hinges. All the better for life on the road.
(And, if Arnette is new to you, they share the same parent company as Oakley, Persol and Ray-Ban, so … they’re kind of a big deal.)
Pricing + Availability
Available now in a variety of frame and lens colors in polarized ($120 USD) and non-polarized ($90) varieties from quality eyeglass retailers everywhere.
